Brand new Patriot - white smoke issue

Hi all,

First time I post here, but I came before, reading some threads. Great forum

I've just bought a brand-new '07 Patriot about 10 days ago and it's running great since that...except one messy thing since yesterday, with its 700km now. After a 20min ride on the highway, I stopped at a red light, and I had a little white smoke during a few seconds... I looked at the engine 500m later, nothing to see, no smoke. I drove in city for 10min more, no issue. This morning, I took the car to go to work, freeway again for 25km, then stuck in traffic, little smoke again, and again 5min later. Drove in city for 15min more, no more issue. I anybody had an idea of what could be happening, it would be great...
I don't think it can be related, but here in Calgary we have a huge rain since 2 days.
Nothing's appearing on the dashboard.

Thanks alot for any answers!

edit : forgot, I drive safely and don't push too much the car, so can't be that

For those who'll see the same thing, notice it's just condensation on the rad being vaporised when the thermostat opens. Thanks user's manual page 363 and thanks Hitzy from ***********.com forum

Interesting. That's not something I've ever paid attention to before. Welcome to JF!
